All of our standard UTV skids are designed to fit in the Polaris Ranger. However, it is always necessary to check Polaris’s bed dimensions in order to confirm your QTAC will fit. Also, bed capacity and overall payload must be taken into account. We make skids to fit just about any bed configuration and weight limit, so let’s make sure to get you the correct QTAC for your needs and requirements.
One feature of the Polaris bed worth noting is that there are angled plastic gussets/reinforcement molded into the floor at the front of the bed. These ribs keep any flat item from being able to slide all the way to the front of the bed, as they’ll ride up on the gussets. Because of this, most QTACs – except for the 20S and 40S – need to be placed on forklift runners in order to clear the ribs and fit well within the tailgate.
One feature of the Polaris Ranger that is very helpful is the adjustable rear suspension position. Along with spring preload, there are three available rear suspension positions on most Polaris Rangers. The position that places the shock in the most vertical position is the best when carrying a load. If this position isn’t used, you’ll notice the rear of the UTV sagging when the bed is nearing its weight capacity.
